MALLOW federated workshops are:
- Agents, Web Services and Ontologies, Integrated Methodologies
Organizers: Matteo Baldoni,
Following the success of the previous edition held in Durham in 2007, MALLOW-AWESOME'009 wants to
stimulate discussion among researchers working on Agents, Web Services, and Ontologies, in order to
help the identification and the definition of Methodologies for integrating them. The realisation of
distributed, open, dynamic, and heterogeneous software systems is, in fact, a challenge that involves
many facets, from formal theories to software engineering and practical applications. Scientists in
various research areas, such as Semantic Web, Web Services, Agents, Ontologies, are attacking this
problem from different perspectives. MALLOW-AWESOME'009 attempts to provide a discussion forum for
collecting and comparing such diverse experiences with the aim of fostering cross fertilization.
- Coordination, Organization, Institutions and Norms in Agent Systems in Online Communities (COIN in Online Communities)
Organizers: Julian Padget,
The COIN workshop series
brings together the topics of coordination, organization, institutions
and norms in the context of multi-agent systems.
This edition of COIN focusses on these issues in the context of
on-line communities, where we seek contributions that explore the
dimensions of social, legal, economic and technological norms as they
affect agent-agent, agent-human, human-human interactions.
- Formal Approaches to Multi-Agent Systems (FAMAS)
Organizers: Barbara Dunin-Keplicz,
In recent years, multiagent systems have come to form one of the key technologies for software
development. The fourth edition of the FAMAS workshop series, after the success of FAMAS'03
affiliated to ETAPS'03 in Warsaw, FAMAS'06 affiliated with ECAI'06 in Riva del Garda, and
FAMAS'007 affiliated with MALLOW'007 in Durham, aims to bring together researchers from the
fields of logic, theoretical computer science and multiagent systems in order to discuss formal
techniques for specifying and verifying multi-agent systems.
- LAnguages, methodologies and Development tools for multi-agent systemS (LADS)
Organizers: Mehdi Dastani,
Amal El Fallah Seghrouchni,
LADS'09 aims to offer a rich forum for leading researchers, from both
academia and industry, interested in sharing their experiences about
the theory and practice of formal approaches, programming languages,
tools and techniques that support the development and deployment of
multi-agent systems. These are gaining increasing attention in
important application areas such as electronic institutions, semantic
web, web services, security, grid computing, ambient intelligence,
pervasive computing, electronic contracting, among others.
- Multi-Agent Systems and Simulation (MAS&S)
MAS&S'09 aims at providing a forum for discussing recent advances on the
integration of Simulation and Agent Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE)
methodologies and techniques for the analysis, design,
validation and implementation of Multi-Agent Systems.
- COST AT Argumentation day (Argumentation)
Leendert van der Torre
The topic of the day will be new directions in argumentation,
such as temporal dynamics, fibring of argumentation frameworks,
modal logics of argumentation, modal provability foundations
for argumentation, etc. The day will start with the MALLOW
plenary session invited speaker Prof. Dov Gabbay.
